inseparable from material and technological advance. human progress was inevitable because of the the new doctrine or discovery concerning history, that history had a mind of its own and that it had a destination in mind from its very beginnings to its culmination or completion. the german philosopher was the greatest philosopher of history in the sense of the term. american liberalism always had more than his followers and credit which is unfortunate thing for americans. let me offer to potations that will characterize this kind of progressivism that infiltrated american politics. when he was the president of princeton university, woodrow wilson said something that he repeated to the people when he was running for election in 1912 and even make sure it was included in the volume of his and its beaches from the 1912 campaign called the new freedom. wilson said that the objective of college education should be to make the sons as much on like their fathers as possible. think about that for a moment. to make this was as much of like their fathers as possible. not because the fathers were no
